A few pointers about presenting:
1. Each person who speaks has a 2-minute limit on time to present and cannot duplicate questions already asked.
2. When asking your question MAKE IT PERSONAL. Given the realities of the process (again, see the link above), your ability to personalize your message/question will be key to its impact.

TOMORROW there is a Special Election for the District 1 seat on the South Portland City Council. Anyone in South Portland can vote in that election–whether or not you live in District 1. Please see this link for additional information:
